Fall leaves layout with oil pastel technique

 I’m so happy that it is fall! It is by far the best time of year! Love the colors, the changes of nature, and the so many outdoor family programs.

I am sure you have all fallen in love with the Maggie Holmes ‘Gather’ ephemera pack just as I have and of course I wanted to use them on all of the layouts! This ephemera is the base of my last layout, I just spiced up with some layered leaves colored with the Prima Marketing Oil pastels.

For my layout, I used the pretty mint cardstock and a mint patterned paper from the Maggie Holmes Gather collection as my background and layered some of the ephemera and pieces of patterned paper around my photo.

For adding dimension I stitch around some of the ephemera.I picked out some Maggie Holmes Gather and Simple Stories gold tickers and ephemera from my September Kit and embellished my layout with them. They gave a beautiful shine to my page.

In this short video you can check how I created these mixed media leaves:
